A meeting was held in Bangkok in February, 1986, to review the status of a project begun in 1984 to raise the achievement level of primary school students first in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, Thailand, and later, in India, Nepal, the Philippines, and Sri Lanka. After an introductory chapter providing background to the Joint Innovative Project (JIP), Chapter Two summarizes progress reports from each of the participating countries and the People's Republic of China, the latter newly interested in joining the project. Additionally presented are brief statements of participants' future plans and those proposed program improvements resulting from deliberations of the review meeting. A report on a field trip made to Thai primary schools is also included. Chapter Three presents an overview of the initiatives and actions planned and previously begun by JIP member countries. Discussion concerns the adequacy of the project's framework, effective preparation of young children, methods and materials of instruction, preparation of teachers and supervisors, and involvement of parents and community. Chapter Three also presents an overview of the discussions on major areas of concern to the member countries, particularly the development and management of human resources. Chapter Four lists participants' proposals for the agenda of the project's anticipated final meeting in December, 1986. Appendices provide the agenda and lists of participants and members. (RH)
